Which I never realize til I turn my camera on and see "Change the Batteries" flash on the screen before my camera turns itself off.
I figured out the increasing for Ryan's hat. I needed 34 stitches on each needle so I just spaced increases between three and four stitches and counted to make sure I'd have the right number.
And then I charted my very first Fair Isle pattern. It's a snowflake, of a sort, and I don't think it obeys Fair Isle rules since I have stretches of 7-8 stitches of one color only. But, I don't care. It looks nice and Ryan didn't hate the pattern.
Here's Sheldon, modeling the hat. Oddly enough, the hat is still too small for a duck stuffed with PVC beads. I'd say this might be a problem, but I'm getting gauge and I have yet to finish four charts. And if it really is too small, I can just add another chart at the bottom. Or rip out a couple of charts, increase a bit more, fiddle around with charts, and so forth. It'll work.
And the sock, modeled by Sheldon:
I think it is a tad too small. But then, he has big feet.
Ah, yes. It fits Eeyore and he's quite a bit bigger than Sheldon. Proof that the duck has big feet and that I'm at least somewhat crazy, since I have my stuffed animals modeling knit projects and so forth.
Perhaps bedtime is in order.
